According to him, the security deployment was based on intelligence reports from security agencies, to ensure the safety of residents, including private and public institutions located in the area.

“We didn’t want to take any chances at all, knowing fully well the intelligence we were getting.

“So, that is why there is so much security within the Bwari area council.


“This is because if anything happens, it will be a setback to the entire country and the FCT,” the minister said.

The minister restated the Administration’s support to the NLS and pledged to consider the institution’s request for the construction of staff quarters and provision of vehicles.

He noted that it was important for agencies within the FCT to be given necessary support.

“Luckily, the legal profession is my own constituency and so, it will be out of place if they have problems and I won’t be able to support them.

“You should take it as granted that the FCT will support you,” Wike said.

He directed the General Counsel of the FCT Administration to liaise with the school management to see how the request for the staff quarters would be captured in the FCTA’s 2024 statutory budget.
